“Wonderful stay” We stayed at the apartment in July and enjoyed it tremendously.
Very spacious and clever laid out apartment considering hills in Funchal.
very private ocean view terrace. But the real value comes from the hosts. They live in Madeira all their life and are very friendly and helpful. They showed us the places we probably would not go to see if it wasn't for them and they are worth seeing.
Wonderful stay thank you Sonia and Joel :-)
“Very well equipped apartment with great views, five minutes walk from La vie Shopping Centre and a very helpful owner.” Five minutes walk from number 7 Aerobus stop by La Vie Shopping Centre. Two minutes walk to Rua da Carriera (street of the restaurants). 15 minutes walk to the Cable Car for Monte Tropical Gardens. A great location next to The English Church. Carlos, the owner, was most helpful and the apartment was very well equipped and had great views from the back rooms looking out across the hills to the East. We were able to walk easily to all the central Funchal sites, tourist information and bus stops. We had an excellent week on this amazing and wonderful Island.
“A lovely base for a lovely holiday” Villa Firdaus is a lovely property, set in pretty gardens overlooking Funchal. It is spacious, and extremely well fitted out. The kitchen is huge, with plenty of working space for several people to be operating at the same time. Our adult daughter holidayed with us, and we could soon put a substantial meal together. There is a supermarket quite close by, and plenty of shopping opportunities in Funchal, particularly the market, which is a must. There are, of course, plenty of excellent eating places in and around Funchal if cooking is not a holiday must. The property manager lives in the basement area (completely detached) and is a wonderful source of information and suggestions for absolutely anything to do with/in Madeira, and especially for restaurants.
We stayed in Villa Firdaus for the Christmas/New Year holiday. Compared to Britain the weather was extremely good - though it started a bit on the cold side, with some rain, it gradually got better and better, until we were having lovely sunny, and very warm days. Our one disappointment was that the property was rather cold in the evenings - but as a compensation most mornings found us having breakfast on the terrace. Christmas morning - smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and champagne - just like home - but sitting in sunshine!
“Wonderful villa in a great location with excellent views and facilities” An excellent villa with top grade views and facilities.
Very comfortable and clean.
The owner us very helpful and friendly who made our stay extremely comfortable and memorable.
We have already recommended the villa to friends.
The only downside was that there is only one satellite channel in English. Naturally there are Portuguese channels but there are many German channels. Otherwise you couldn't want for a better villa!
“Lovely country setting and very friendly owners next door” We,ve been here three times and always had a great time. A beautiful island, and the stable has e very thing you need for self catering. All the locals are very friendly, and you are away from the hustle and bustle of towns. Would strongly recommend this house.

“Great holiday getaway, amazing ocean view and very modern facilities...” Booked in December and found this place, new to the market I decided to gamble and what a wonderful surprise... It is well located near everything you need (banks, hospital, supermarket, beach, etc) weather was amazing compared to back home, the house is new with a great swimming pool and the view is just amazing especially during the sunset... I highly recommend this place to anyone as I was one of the first to occupy it and have spoken to the owner to rebook it in the near future...
“Mrs” Lovely apartment, beautifully furnished with everything we needed. WiFi was excellent. Friendly and thoughtful hosts who went out of their way to make sure we made the best of our stay in Madeira, even being kind enough to run us to the airport to pick up a hire car. As the owners state the apartment is close to the airport but we didn't find this a problem. We loved Madeira and will definitely return.
“Outstanding” Outstanding location, sea views are fantastic. Property was excellent, had every possible amenity. Great location for getting around the Island, easy drive from the airport. Owners and staff were very discrete. The owner kept in contact throughout the whole process. Best holiday we have experienced, would highly recommend it for location, quality of property and great people.

Old Town Villa Extensive Ocean Views
Immaculate, well-appointed house
Three good en suite bed rooms, huge living room, well-appointed kitchen, large garage and spacious terrace. Close to many restaurants and bars - around 15 minutes from the closest supermarket though there is a minimarket closer which stocks mainly liquids though can provide cheese,ham, and tinned sardines for the first night. …
Good location, great outdoor spaces to relax and enjoy views over the garden and Funchal.
The location of the villa was great, close enough to Funchal to get in easily by car, taxi or bus but far enough away to enjoy the views and relax in the beautiful gardens. Our favourite spot was the covered sitting area where we had breakfast, enjoying the view, morning sun and smelling the perfume from the flowers in the garden.
On arrival the villa was clean and comfortable, with a well appointed kitchen and welcome basket of local goodies. It was a little chilly on the first few nights (it was February). Unfortunately the main fire in the living area wasn't working but we were provided with an gas heater as an alternative, and each bedroom had an electric heater too.
Joao made us feel very welcome and was helpful in giving advice on the local amenities. We enjoyed our first night's meal in a local restaurant Joao recommended and having a good supermarket, bakery, butchers and pharmacy just 10 minutes walk was ideal.
A really enjoyable week's holiday. …
Cozy apartment in the historical center
Perfect location in quiet city centre street, preferable to touristy hotel zone.
Brilliant location for visitors without a car, very near centre but quiet at night. Pretty, narrow street with old church at top, & very close to all places of interest in city centre. Apartment on 1st floor, no other flats in building. Very spacious lounge & bedrooms, well fitted kitchen, comfortable beds. Easy walk to shops, including large supermarket, 10 minutes walk to bus stops on sea front.
Constantino (owner) was charming & very helpful, with many useful suggestions about bus trips & restaurants. …
